great post Beth. Figuring out when to use something like GroundCrew is the key question, isn't it. Love the tip on plancast - will check it out. Your sandbox metaphor may be right for what is beginning to happen over at philanthropy2173 - - how to manage such a role for a web-based conversation-box is very much on my mind.


Melinda Lewis

Plancast sounds very cool, Beth. So how do people find each other there? I mean, are you just sharing plans with people with you're already in "network", or can people find each other based on common plans, even if they don't have an extant relationship? Which is more common? If the latter, I think it could be especially helpful for advocacy, a way to "invite" people to the work while still in the planning stages, instead of expecting them to just show up to what's already planned, as we often do.

Thanks for sharing the Prezi, Beth. Agreed, it's a cool tool. Fun to play in the sandbox with you and the growing gang :)

Hi Beth.

I'm also committed to social network analysis, and building networks, focused on common purposes. That's what the Tutor/Mentor Connection has been trying to do for the past 16 years. Now some of the software is catching up and may help us demonstrate the work we're doing, as well as accelerate it.

I encourage you to follow some of the articles I've been writing at about using maps to support networks. In 2010 we will begin using inFlow software donated by Valdis Krebs of to do some analysis of the networks we've been creating over the past 15 years. As we do this we'll be sharing what we learn on our blog and on our ning site.
